Wrinkles and All

The trouble with the aging process is that inside, one feels much the same as one did at 26, while outside, wrinkles, blotches, and sagging are taking their toll. At 56, I'm getting braver about posing for photos, but it's not easy. Nevertheless, it may be a month before I get another version of my new design ready to photograph on Isabel, so for what it's worth, here are a few "selfies" of same as modelled by yours truly, wrinkles and all.






I'm calling it "Wheatsheaves". See you in the New Year.

  1. We are so hard on ourselves as we age. You look fabulous, especially in that great design! Can't wait for the pattern.

  2. In the opinionn of this somewhat-oldish,w wrinkled oman - the sweater looks lovley, as do you. As my husband so kindly says when I ask him for an opinion on my aging body - "My eyes aren't as good as they used to be." One of those aging processes to be thankful for.

  3. Dear Elizabeth,
    I really appreciate that YOU, the designer, wrinkles and all, are posing in that beautiful sweater. I am aging, wrinkling, getting older...and I love to see what a sweater will look like on someone similar. Isabel is beautiful - and so are you!

  4. I agree with your sentiments on aging. I feel young mentally and wonder who that oldster is in the mirror! I love your designs and your blog! Keep it up, girl!

  5. Honey, we're ALL getting older. Wrinkles were signs of wisdom & experience once prized before we Baby Boomers arrived to change the world. It's now time to change it back . . . . I adore your design, especially with you smiling in it! Did you use your spindle spun?? or is that commercial yarn?

    1. Sharon,
      The yarn is Cascade Ecological in Vanilla, which is NOT the same as Ecru, its lighter cousin. I don't know how to describe the colour, except to say that it's a light neutral that's neither yellowish nor grayish nor brownish. I'm stumped. I love it, though, and thought of this cardigan the instant I saw it.

  6. Liz, you look elegant - and I too love the fact that you are modelling your creation. Will definitely be buying this one and putting it top of my list.

  7. I want to try making this one. It is so lovely! And I do believe it is a sweater that is elegant enough for Beatrice Eliott! You look a bit like her too. Beautiful workmanship.
